New poetry from a fiercely talented, Ted Hughes Award-winning poet.
Kate Tempest follows up her sell-out show Brand New Ancients with a new full-length collection of poetry – an ambitious, multi-voiced work based around the mythical figure of Tiresias.
This four-part work follows him through his transformations from child, man and woman to blind prophet; through this structure, Tempest holds up a mirror to contemporary life in a direct and provocative way rarely associated with poetry.
Kate is one of the most outstanding voices of our times.
At Kate’s invitation, join the post-show party in The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall with a live music set from Raven Bush (Sid Arthur) and Kwake Bass, drummer and violinist from Brand New Ancients.
